Our goal is to provide a healthy, safe and inclusive environment where children can enhance their holistic learning and well-being.
Our program will offer developmentally appropriate, play based experiences that will increase independence to expand children’s abilities.
We acknowledge the dignity, uniqueness, and worth of each child with respect to their family, culture, and society.
The Prince Albert Child Care Co-operative Association is a a 113-space Licensed Child Care organization in 3 locations.
The centre is a non-profit organization governed by a board of directors who are elected by the membership of the co-operative association. The board is elected each year at the annual general meeting (AGM).
Because your child’s first 5 years of life are so important, we want to help provide the best start for your child. As a part of our service, we use the developmental screening tool, Ages and Stages Questionnaires: A Parent -Completed Child Monitoring System to help us to keep track of your child’s development.
Regular screening provides a fast and helpful look at how your child is doing in important areas. Screening can identify your child’s strengths, uncover new milestones to celebrate, and reveal any areas where your child may need support. It helps you understand your child’s development and know what to look for next. And it helps you work with doctors and educators to plan next steps when it makes the most difference—your child’s critical first years of life.
A questionnaire will be provided every 2, 4, or 6-month period. You will be asked to answer questions about some things your child can and cannot do. The questionnaire includes questions about your child’s communication, gross motor, fine motor, problem solving, and personal-social skills.
We then use the results to individualize our curriculum to meet your child’s changing needs.
Every family has access to safe, affordable quality care that meets the needs of the community and allows children to freely express themselves in a play-based, caring environment.
